I am an R user. I always run programs on multiple computers of campus. For example, I need to run 10 different programs. I need to open PuTTY 10 times to log into the 10 different computers. And submit each of programs to each of 10 computers (their OS is Linux). Is there a way to log in 10 different computers and send them command at same time? I use following command to submit program
nohup Rscript L_1_cc.R > L_1_sh.txt
nohup Rscript L_2_cc.R > L_2_sh.txt
nohup Rscript L_3_cc.R > L_3_sh.txt
First set up ssh so that you can login without entering a password (google for that if you don't know how). Then write a script to ssh to each remote host to run the command. Below is an example.
#!/bin/bash host_list="host1 host2 host3 host4 host5 host6 host7 host8 host9 host10" for h in $host_list do case $h in host1) ssh $h nohup Rscript L_1_cc.R > L_1_sh.txt ;; host2) ssh $h nohup Rscript L_2_cc.R > L_2_sh.txt ;; esac done
This is a very simplistic example. You can do much better than this (for example, you can put the ".R" and the ".txt" file names into a variable and use that rather than explicitly listing every option in the case).
